Out and About in Dresden

CHRISTMAS RECAP. I still have a few photos to show from Christmas, which we spent in my hometown Dresden. I usually make sure to visit at least two Christmas markets; the rather traditional (and commercial) ‘Striezelmarkt’, which dates back to year 1434 and is therefore one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany, and the medieval market. The Striezelmarkt usually has two Finnish stands offering glögi and other Finnish delicacies, to which I turn in case of a very bad ‘I miss Finland’ situation. But actually, I prefer the medieval market because of its cosy atmosphere and the lack of pushy tourists.

Puh, the weather has been really miserable here in London this week. But I guess it’s winter after all. At least fun things are coming up this weekend. I’m gonna meet up with a few other German expats tonight that have one way or the other an interest in the music business. And on Sunday my best friend is coming to town and we’re gonna celebrate Chinese New Year in Chinatown with a few friends. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
